Extreme art 1

In all the fuss about art schools no longer teaching basic drawing skills it’s often forgotten that many people can draw skilfully almost from the day they are born. An extreme example of this is extreme drawer, Stephen Wiltshire aka The Human Camera. Check it out as Wiltshire, after taking a helicopter ride over Rome, draws a panoramic view of the city in perfect detail from memory over three days. This YouTube clip comes from a series called Beautiful Minds.
